CEO or chief executive officer is a bureaucratic position that carries the ultimate management responsibility for an organization. Commonly, CEO is a rank that is associated with the head of the company. One of the primary duties of the CEO is to report to the board of directors, which is answerable to the owners of the company. In addition, CEO carries out the job of designating other managerial officers including that of a president. Depending on the extent of his or her functions, a CEO can also have the title of President/CEO or President and CEO. A CEO is not only a key management figure, but also the face of any business establishment. Therefore CEO's career record and professional background often represent an important qualitative parameter of the overall value of the company.
